ICLR is the leading supplier of case law for England and Wales. This year marks our 150th anniversary, since our foundation in 1865 as a central, reliable, modestly priced source of law reports of those cases which change or clarify the law, or which are for some other reason instructive or valuable.

Cases reported in The Law Reports (Appeal Cases (AC), Queen’s Bench (QB), Chancery (Ch) and Family (Fam) series) are required to be cited in the senior courts of civil jurisdiction in preference for any alternative version of the case: Practice Direction (Citation of Authorities) [2012] 1 WLR 780; [2012] 2 All ER 255, Sen Cts (para 6).
